Musonda To Force Pelembe Down Bucs' Pecking Order?

The arrival of new Orlando Pirates marksman, Mwape Musonda at Parktown has signalled ominous times for Mozambique international and Bucs striker, Helder Pelembe, who has not yet tasted much first team action this season.

Musonda on signing for Pirates 

The burly forward has failed to cement a regular berth at Pirates since his arrival in the 2013/14 campaign and in recent times his lack of selection in the Bucs squad has fuelled speculation on his uncertain future with the Soweto giants.

With only two league goals to show for his 17 league appearances in two seasons, Pelembe has had a torrid time in competing for a position with first choice inform strikers such as Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kermit Erasmus, with Lennox Bacela deputising for the two frontmen.

With Mwape now part of the Bucs' striking roster, matters have become even bleaker for the 27-year-old.

It was reported that Pelembe was being pursued by National First Division side, Golden Arrows in January however the player himself decided against playing in the NFD, resulting in the potential deal falling through.  

The crew recently attended a Bucs training session where coach Eric Tinkler could not hold back his excitement when describing the abilities of his new Zambian hitman, stating that the 20-year-old had the ability to score from range with both feet.

Mwape has displayed a glimpse of his quality as South Africans can recall him scoring a goal against Pirates at the FNB Stadium in a CAF Champions League clash played on 6 April 2013.
